We aim to make the Helensville Show as accessible and inclusive as possible so everyone can enjoy our great family event to the fullest. Here is a range of ways we are doing that:
Helensville showgrounds are completely flat, and each year our volunteers put in a lot of effort to ensure the grassed areas such as the trade section and the carnival area are as flat and smooth as possible. The main show building has a level concrete floor. Getting to the equestrian rings does involve crossing the sand racetrack, but the main crossing area is pretty well compacted for show day. Please note: if it is very wet in the days prior to the show, some grassed parts of the grounds could become too soft for narrow wheelchair wheels.
We’ll be adding more information to this page shortly. In the meantime, if you have a specific accessibility question please contact us.
